The Journal of Contemporary Dental Practice

by Shankargouda Patil

Aims & Scope

The Journal of Contemporary Dental Practice (JCDP) is a peer-reviewed, open access MEDLINE indexed journal. The Journal publishes original research papers, review articles, rare and novel case reports, and clinical techniques. Manuscripts are invited from all specialties of dentistry i.e., conservative dentistry and endodontics, dentofacial orthopedics and orthodontics, oral medicine and radiology, oral pathology, oral surgery, orodental diseases, pediatric dentistry, implantology, periodontics, clinical aspects of public health dentistry, and prosthodontics, however, articles with clinical relevance will be given preference for publication.

Ownership and Management

The Journal of Contemporary Dental Practice (JCDP) is owned and managed under the auspices of Jaypee Brothers Medical Publishers.

Peer Review Process

All manuscripts undergo a Double-blinded review process. It is ensured that the reviewers are unaware of the names of the authors or the institutes where the research is conducted. The article once submitted will undergo a thorough plagiarism check and an initial check is conducted to ensure that all author instructions are complied with and the guidelines for submission are followed. The manuscript may be returned to the author for corrections, if required to conform to the journal instructions. Once, the article is confirmed, it will undergo editorial review within 1 week. Following this it will then be sent for peer review, which takes 6-8 weeks and the authors will receive the mail from the Editor stating the final decision of the manuscript.

Managing editor who runs the first level of material check processes the manuscript for all components and approves for moving to the next level. On the next level it is checked for suitability for the core readers of JCDP by the Editor-in-Chief. Once found suitable, it is assigned to one of the Associate Editors on the editorial board. If the language and the grammar are incorrect, it will be sent first to the Scientific Language editor, who may suggest changes. If this happens, the manuscript will be sent back to the author for corrections and resubmission. Manuscripts not found suitable will not be sent out for review and will be immediately rejected, and authors informed. For articles describing original research in humans and animals, a letter of approval from the Institutional Ethics Committee must accompany these manuscripts or a letter stating that the Institutional Review Board had waived the need for informed consent. 

All research shall be conducted as per the World Medical Association Declaration of Helsinki Ethical Principles for Medical Research Involving Human Subjects. (modified in 1983 - see https://www.wma.net/wp-content/uploads/2016/11/DoH-Oct2013-JAMA.pdf). The research must adhere to the 5 principles of ethics of research: informed consent, voluntary participation, privacy and confidentiality, justice, and beneficence, and right to review.

Open Access Policy

A comprehensive outlook on open access policy that we follow:

Open access refers to the practice of making peer-reviewed scholarly research and literature freely available online to anyone interested in reading it without any restriction. This Open access publications are freely and permanently available online to anyone with an internet access. Unrestricted use, distribution and reproduction in any medium (which is non-commercial) is permitted, provided the author/editor is properly attributed. All the periodicals are deposited immediately upon publication, without any technical, financial, gender limitations, in an agreed format on the journal website as well as archiving and indexing databases as applicable to a journal. All articles are self-archiving, with world-wide access through DOI (Digital Object Identifier) - standardized by the International Organization for Standardization, provided for individual article published.

We are fully archived on PORTICO.

Why open access publishing?

Restricted access to scientific research and advancements through subscription pay wall hinders communication within the scientific community. Moreover, restricted access can also hinder the education and dissemination of scientific knowledge to the aspiring younger generations who are keen to pursue a career in science. Increased productivity and development of science can only be achieved by diffusing knowledge and providing the facilities for creating permanent repositories such as Open Access.

The use of a Creative Commons 4.0 License (CC-BY-NC 4.0) enables user/reader/peer to use the content with clear permission in a way that it can be reused and redistributed as long as the article source is appropriately given credit for non-commercial purpose.
